Summer is almost over. Why not celebrate its last golden days with some matching balloons? This outfit of the day was taken on my mom’s birthday a while back. She decorated her home with these beautiful balloons and when one of her friends (a photographer) wanted to take some photos, I had to make some outfit pictures too! I think they turned out great, especially because I love this outfit as well. It’s the perfect pre-Fall outfit if you ask me. The weather in The Netherlands has still been pretty hot, but I’m pretty much over the Summer fashion… Wearing longsleeves with short skirts and pairing it with more neutral colors like this leopard print top is the perfect way to transition your wardrobe from Summer to Fall.
I’ve owned this scuba skirt for a long time now (2 years or something), but I still really like it. I think the skater skirt style looks really good on my body shape. It’s also a great Summer-into-Fall transition piece. In the Summer you can wear it with a cute croptop, while in the Fall you can pair it with a sweater or with a longsleeve, like I did here. Leopard print is going to make a big comeback this season as well. I’ve always been into leopard (I see it as a little bit of a more unique neutral), but now I’ve seen it a lot in stores too. I love this top in particular, because it has a formal fit. The material is kind of chiffon-y (but not see-through though) and the cut is also very classy. This tones down the leopard print, making it look sophisticated instead of trashy!
